Orlando Photo Diary Part 1

Top to bottom -
 View from Hollie's parents house, numbered lamp post, Day out at Disney's Animal Kingdom including an African safari, petting zoo within the park where Hollie finally got to meet a Llama, colourful ice cream truck, lead up to the crazy mountain ride, totally scared on the Dino ride, huge insect with found on the path (about the size of your palm), an afternoon spent in Disney's Hollywood Studios

Top to bottom -
Timex watch with interchangeable straps was a birthday present from Hollie's parents, bicycle display in Gap, me and Hollie by the wonderful lake at Celebration, and again the lake at night, Celebration's finest ice creams and Art Deco cinema, lost but we didn't care, get your guns this way, shopping at Millenia Mall where I bought a shirt and baseball cap in Urban Outfitters, test driving Hollie's swimming cap, water tower near the house, view from the front at night, American chocolate bars are 10 times better than ours in taste and names, old coke crates in Anthropologie, jerk chicken on sweet potato mash and salsa at Bahama Breeze, on IDrive at night makes for some immense views

I'm back! With many photos and stories to tell, so instead of waffling for now I'm hitting you guys with a couple of picture heavy posts.  We really did have the best time, it reminded what an amazing place America is and how wonderful the people are. I'll explain more later but for now just enjoy part 1 of my photo diary.

  17. Superman ice cream!? What! That is amazing. I once found Smurf ice cream in brussels but it was just smurf blue & tasted like bubblegum flavouring. Looks like you had a proper amazing time & that watch is absolutely wonderful.

  20. /very much looking forward to hearing your opinions on this country! The photo of you guys hugging is kind of amazing! Why don't all British tourists have that kind of style when travelling?!

  21. ha. the swimming cap love it. you saw so much, looks like you both had a fab time.

  22. You're back! And I absolutely LOVE your photography, Mat.

    Your style is so iconically American, it's uncanny. I had a photography teacher in college (sorry, Uni), who I only realised later, as an adult, was a famous photographer, of an American, male movement. We worked in the darkroom, shot in black and white.. I am totally blanking on his name now, it's so frustrating. Your style is very much of this movement.

    Looking thru these... the top shot in Orlando Diary 2, for example, with the flag star.. or the light blue car.. very crisp, clean, with a strong sense of humour.. not unlike your comments, come to think of it.

    Not like my style at all! haha. Love your work. I'd love to see these as big kodachrome prints, in the Tate Modern. You've got to come to London sometime with Hollie: we could go round the Tate with Mr. Dot!

    Glad you had corn muffins, too, and Mountain Dew.
